Good school, but why on this list?

I am a graduate of this school. It's got many excellent programs but why is it on places to visit? Not a tourist attraction

People can cut down this school all they want, but I have seen many individuals coming out making more money with an associate degree than a bachelors degree or then going on to major universities. It has grown from 2000 people to over 14k people, remarkable!

I'm currently going to this college its great, classes are small, cost is affordable where I can pay for them myself with out financial aid I plan to get a AAD and transfer over to UT Brownsville and complete my Masters. If you go here is the best idea you can have before going to a bigger University. Good Luck... More

this is where I started my college experience before I transferred over to Texas A&M Kingsville. Kingsville they had no problem accepting all of my STC credits, while Pan AM is the total opposite. Save money here and if you want your B.A's, go to TAMUK.

STC is rated one of the top 25 two year community colleges in the USA. Obtain AA Degrees or Certificates in various programs.Excellent place to start a college education and can transfer credits to a four year University.

The Rainbow Room is upstairs or elevator in the Library. There are special speakers and art displays, often.

The campus is beautiful, me and my wife stopped by for an art show. I like to return just to walk around for excercise.
